Indeed, Jordan lost four of his front teeth early on in his career when he had them kicked out during a reserves match at Leeds United.

Arsenal Finances are flourishing- Will Wenger use it?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views

Arsenal have released details of the club's finances for the six months up to November, and they make very healthy reading. It is abundantly clear that the business section of the Gunners is going great guns, but just as clear that the football side needs to catch up. The struggle to finish in the top four this season, along with the disappointing exits from the cup competition show the stark need for serious investment in the squad, and the chairman has promised that Arsene Wenger will no longer have to get by on a pittance.

Will Wenger finally be allowed to splash the cash?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views

It is being reported today that the Arsenal board will back Arsene Wenger with some hard cash this summer to the tune of around £70 million. It could even be more, which should become clearer after the half yearly figures are published around the end of the month. It seems a familiar story, as Wenger was thought to have a decent amount of money to spend in January but only bought a replacement left back on the last day of the transfer window, which he was forced into by the injury to Kieran Gibbs.

I bet that Arsene Wenger regrets making his comment about Arsenal reaching the Champions league is like winning a trophy, because he will never hear the last of it until he does steer the Gunners to silverware. Journalists can be like a dog with a bone, and they will gnaw this one until there is nothing left.

Tom Fox, Arsenal's Chief Commercial Director, is not particularly famous for making supportive statements about the club and he is sure to anger a lot of fans with his latest offering.

Obviously (as its his job!) he's very happy to have helped negotiate a new deal with the Emirates airline to continue their shirt sponsorship with the club, but maybe he shouldn't have said that the fans should "be proud" of getting big-money sponsorship deals, despite not winning anything.

The Ethics of Soccer Sponsorship

TransAmerica Extends Sponsorship

Tonight the Rapids announced that TransAmerica has extended their jersey sponsorship for another 3 seasons, through the 2019 season. One of the key components of signing players like Jermaine Jones and (possibly) Tim Howard is the sponsorship dollars they bring in. I doubt the Rapids would look at extending their contract until they knew hey could get full value out of those signings so I take this as a good sign that the deal to use the #1 allocation spot is all but done and they're just waiting to announce it until the time is right.
